    You would be wrong. I am surprised you are so unaware on this topic. Gelatin is just animal collagen and is used in tons of foods, many I bet that you eat and have no clue that they contain it. Spam only has 6 ingredients, and the only preservative it contains is sodium nitrate.

    That said, I am not really participating in this whole "Spam" conversation anymore, since I have eaten it like once in the last thirty years or so.

    *Edit* Lom beat me to it. Point being, there are far worse processed foods out there.

    Never seen sausages with gelatin/jelly when opened up or unpackaged. I rest my case.

    SPAM. Let's do this. Take the label off the tin. Replace it with Alpo or Purina. Open it up, put in a dog bowl. Same Same...

    But again. If that is food one enjoys, knock yourself out. I have read that SPAM essentially doesn't have a shelf life. Can last for years like a Hostess Twinkie.

    That is because sausages are put into a casing, which is usually an intestine.

    Actually Snubs. I am just tossing fun at folks. I read about SPAM years ago. There are many articles about it and how it is unhealthy for you which is why I wouldn't let my daughters eat it no matter how many Filipinos might LOVE it. It's why I do not eat hotdogs and here Pork or fishballs etc. But those are my choices.

    Those things noodle shop owners buy by the sackful on the basis of cheapest is best? I don't eat those, whatever they claim to be, at best they are the scrapings off the floor. I always order noodles 'Mai sai loog chin'.

    I was also wondering what JPPR2 was so worried about but it seems to me that there is only one ingredient that can be a health issue and that is the sodium nitrite.
    Though having said that eating too much of anything is a health issue.


    What is spam actually made of?

    Not interested in a sandwich, since I have my own sausage. Harhar!

    I haven't eaten Spam in more than 2 years. I didn't buy it during covid times, and didn't buy it for a long time prior to covid. I don't eat much pork or canned food nowadays.

    That said, if Spam was offered now, I'd eat a slice of it, with rice and egg (a Spamsilog). Cheers!

    Totally off topic:
    Not to do with spam !

    Mendip

    As you'll know, the mountain monkeys just voted, and the opposition won..big !

    They say that they'll take Norway in a greener direction and have "plans" to scale down development of new oilfields.

    (can't see that happen in the near future and know all arguments for letting it continue as usual)
    So..no more

    Katie - are the percentages in the chinkie version the same, 90% shoulder, 10% other parts. Or does the ingredients description allow them quite a bit of latitude to include a range of delicious non-piggie additions.

    As neither states cuts of meat, the ability to use both are available.

    As for "latitude to include a range of delicious non-piggie additions"

    On both, I suggest you check your own country's ability to deliver on food quality promises. Caveat emptor.

    Prior to throwing stones at others.

    Spam Original Ingredients:

    Pork with Ham, Salt, Water, Modified Potato Starch, Sugar, Sodium Nitrite

    SPAM(R) Classic | SPAM(R) Varieties


    Note, no stated meat %.

    Ma Ling Ingredients:


    Pork Meat 72%, Water, Ham Meat 10%, Salt, Mustard Flavour, Oitati Starch, Sugar, Stabilisers E451, E450, Thickener E407a, Spices, Antioxidant: E316, Preservative E250

    MaLing Luncheon Meat 340g | Canned Pork and Ham | Asia Market

    Note, meat % sated, 72% + 10%.

    who is throwing stones, China has a long history in quality.

    Anyway Mendip in the interest of fostering foreign relations, you have been strangely quiet over your prognosis for offloading bilge water, to give it a nautical slant.

    you are funny ohno. China is the world leader in deceptive food production, it’s practically an Olympic sport. Fake eggs, fake baby milk formula, dyed pig meat, the list goes on!

    Hiya Mendy,
    How is the weight loss program progressing?

    I weighed in when I did my last covid test. I lost ~ 2.2kgs. I think I will stick with my early morning workout program except I will use the home gym. The cardio will come from the yard work I do almost daily and I will fill days not so busy with my Mtn bike rides.

    Good question Helge!

    As you know, oil and gas has transformed Norway from one of the poorest countries in Europe in the 60s to probably the wealthiest country on the planet (per capita) today through extremely good management of huge reserves.

    Norway's wealth mainly comes fro gas (not oil) which they transport via long, large diameter subsea pipelines to France, Belgium, Germany and the UK. The Langeled pipeline to Easington alone supplies 20% of the UK's gas requirements.

    Norway are very keen to boast about their green credentials and have the highest per capita ownership of electric cars in Europe and the majority of their electricity is produced by hydroelectric... not only do they have huge hydrocarbon reserves but they also have mountainous coastal topography that is perfect for hydro electricity production.

    But... there is a lot of hypocrisy involved. A few years ago Statoil ('State Oil') changed their name to the greener sounding 'Equinor', while at the same time developing the Johan Sverdrup oil and gas field, west of Stavanger. This is the third largest oil field on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, currently producing around 535,000 barrels of oil a day and with a design life of 50 years.

    Yeah, so maybe Norway itself is 'green' but every time someone in western Europe cooks their tea it's very likely that they'll be burning Norwegian gas. Next time Joe 90 ruins another meal, there's a one in five chance he's ruining it using Norwegian gas. Norway is just exporting it's carbon emissions around Europe and doing very nicely out of it.

    Norway has run out of locations for hydro-electric dams and their demand for electricity is great... so now they're looking at the possibility of importing electricity from Germany. Guess what, 24% of Germany's electricity is produced by burning coal! That doesn't bother your 'mountain monkeys' Helge, because they can still pretend to be a 'green' country.

    I can't see the Norwegians turning away from fossil fuel production any time soon... all of these seabed mapping projects we're currently undertaking are for future field developments and the gradual expansion of exploration northwards continues. On top of that, there's many thousands of kilometres of pipelines and cables that need inspecting on rolling four-year programmes so I should hopefully get the ten more years out of this industry I need.


    But anyway, as Ootai noted I can have a tendency to moan, but I feel I only moan when justified. I get a lot of spare time to fill on this boat after shift and try to catch up on admin and stuff. I recently had an email from SAS saying that 15,000 points would expire at the end of the year, so as with previous years I looked on the SAS shop for a 'free' Christmas present for my mum.

    Sorry Katie... but FFS, it never ends. On top of everything else, now my mum won't be getting a Christmas present.

    So, what I see in wiki is not longer true?

    Average annual hydropower generation capacity in 2019 was around 131 TWh, about 95% of total electricity production.[4]
    Electricity sector in Norway - Wikipedia

    And in my old memory I have had a knowledge that Norway has plenty geothermal power plants, however, the wiki does not say.
